I prefer to use the new classes and interfaces
specifically created for supporting EJB like
functionality than using bare bones APIs, whatever
that platform could be. Now, in that case, you can
equally use Java.

A good solution can isolate you from the original
complexity of problem, bu othe solutions sometimes at
some point in time they parallel the problem, and a
server side app it's complex thing. Look around, you
have naming, pooling, persistence, scalability, fault
tolerance, etc. All that is build for you by the EJB

This is how the people are using an app server not a 
app server problem by itself. I agree that it's
ridiculous to use an expensive app server like that.
If that where the case you can use the great open
source projects of Apache's Jakarta: Tomcat, Turbine,
